Tall Snowflake Box

Hi everyone 🙂

Well it’s almost Christmas, but that’s just an excuse for making another box, as you can see.

This one I think is just lovely. I found it on Pinterest the other day and thought that you would all like this box too. It was made by  Linda @ “Papercraft with Crafty”

I made quite a few of these boxes before I settled on the size that I liked to hold my favourite Chocolates.

So here are the sizes for my box and the original as well as the video:

The measurements for my box are:

This is what the top of the box should look like when you cut it.

And this what the bottom should look like when you cut it.

I’ve used a 1/8′ hole punch for the bottom where the ribbon goes through.
